3DIcon Corp. (TDCP) and University of Oklahoma’s CSpace Granted another Patent

|Includes: 3DIcon Corp. (TDCP)

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted a second patent for CSpace®. Patent # 8,075,139 for the volumetric, three-dimensional projection and display technology was awarded to the University of Oklahoma under its Sponsored Research Agreement with 3DIcon. The first patent was granted in December 2010.

3DIcon had signed an SRA with OU in 2006 to develop the technology now known as CSpace. Per the terms of the SRA, OU owns the patent for CSpace and 3DIcon has the exclusive worldwide marketing rights to technology.

Titled “3D Light Surface Display,” this second patent describes and protects an invention that uses a light surface display to create a three dimensional image. The light surface display includes a plurality of particles suspended within a volumetric display that illuminate to form a three dimensional image when these particles are energized by the electronic energy of two or more wavelengths.

3DIcon CEO Sidney Aroesty commented, “This second patent fortifies our intellectual property position in two key ways. First, it validates once more the fact that we are developing breakthrough technology for 3D imaging. Secondly, it enhances our marketing and negotiating position with industry partners while providing greater protection against potential patent infringers. We continue to innovate and anticipate filing for additional patents in the near future.”

If brought to market, the CSpace® technology could have a meaningful impact on many industries, including healthcare, security, defense and marketing. According to the company, “CSpace enables viewing inside organs, cargo containers, and baggage, as well as large scale terrain such as oceans and mountains, all of which are beyond the capabilities of other current display methodologies. The company also offers a software product, Pixel Precision®, which targets the R&D market for developers using Texas Instruments’ DLP® line of products.”
